The Learning Curve. A guide to Evaluation for Youth Organisations is a tool to support young peacebuilders in improving their practices with the aim to make their peacebuilding work more sustainable.
The guide has been developed in the context of a longterm partnership called Youth Impact: Strengthening Organizational Capacities to Build Peace in Europe – funded by the Erasmus+ Programme – implemented by the International Secretariat of the United Network of Young Peacebuilders in partnership with five European UNOY members, namely Service Civil International (SCI), Fundación Catalunya Voluntaria (FCV), Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania (PATRIR), Centro Internazionale per la Promozione dell’Educazione e lo Sviluppo (CEIPES) and European Intercultural Forum (EIF).
This guide is based on an in-depth research and analysis conducted by the six organisations mentioned above. The research focused on the current monitoring, evaluation and learning practices in youth peace organisations in Europe, and identified what needs to be done to improve them.

This Guide is
- A tool to learn about necessary elements of planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning
- A tool to assess current practises in monitoring, evaluation and learning in order to identify strengths and weaknesses.
- A repository of good practice in the field and available tools, tips and resources to improve youth peacebuilding work.
This Guide is not
an exhaustive website on how to conduct monitoring and evaluation and how to learn from it. There are many good quality publications accessible online and offline. Instead, we hope that this Guide will support youth organisations to institutionalise monitoring and evaluation and will establish and implement monitoring and evaluation systems as part of their subsequent projects and programmes.
